MLB umpire Angel Hernandez already goes viral for ball call

MLB umpire Angel Hernandez already goes viral for ball call

Everyone in baseball is trying to get into shape this time of year — even those verbally attacking Angel Hernandez.

Cardinals announcers went after the frequently shaky umpire in Sunday’s spring training opener, getting on him for a pitch call that was actually accurate.

“And the 1-1 … Ángel Hernández is in midseason form,” Cardinals play-by-play announcer Dan McLaughlin cracked on the ball call.

“Let’s not make this game too fast, Angel,” his partner added.

But the pitch by Cardinals ace Jack Flaherty was low, MLB’s Gameday graphic showed. Hernandez made the right call. It takes everyone time to get into the swing of things this time of year.
